It’s time to end the war on fat. Dietary fat, that is, not the fat around our waistlines. That’s the message of an online petition at SignOn.org:
To be delivered to: The United States House of RepresentativesThe decades long war against dietary fat must come to an end.
Starting with the McGovern Commission in 1977, we have been told that a healthy diet is low in fat and high in carbohydrates. Despite a lack of scientific evidence to support these claims, the message that fat is “bad” has been repeated so many times that it is now accepted as an unquestionable truth. As a result of these misguided recommendations obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have reached epidemic proportions.

I signed as well, not sure if it will do a lot of good, but, baby steps I guess.
I signed the petition. The last I checked 315 people had signed. They need more!
